A report by jhr Montreal's Adam Bemma on the fate of Cairo, Egypt's Tahrir Square.
One year since the Arab Spring uprising and protest that toppled former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, protesters are still gathering in Cairo's main square calling for the military to hand over power to a civilian government. Egyptians are preparing to commemorate their January 25 revolution and remnants of the Mubarak regime still cling to power, using the same tactics as before.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
